When Bianca & Jordan first reached out to me about being part of their wedding I was so excited. Sounded like it was going to be one for the ages.  We had first talked on the phone, but as were in discussions we started texting. Although I had never met them, our texts were so fun and it was as if we were long time friends who just hadn't seen each other for a long time. Love when you connect with your clients like that!

What a great venue they had chosen for their nuptials at  Sugar Beach Events in Kihei Maui! With an incredible beach & sunset just feet from the venue I knew it was going to be amazing. In addition Sugar Beach Events has a reputation for producing super high quality events with every detail taken care including the most delicious food! 

Bianca & Jordan's wedding day was finally upon on & it was everything I thought it would be.The two of them super calm getting ready with their besties & families. Especially enjoyed suave Jordan & his groomsman getting rowdy just  before the wedding.  

With about a hundred friends & family in attendance sitting facing these perfect palm trees & incredible arch adorned in huge elephant ears their wedding venue looked amazing! Wiping tears from his face as Bianca walked down the aisle with her dad, the scene was set.  They had enlisted one of their best friends to be their minister & seeing that he was out of state he had to do all of the proper paperwork to get his credentials so he could be their minister. How special is that to enlist one of your best friends  to be your minister??

Their wedding vows were beautiful & finally they said their I Do's & the crowd erupted in cheers. Love seeing all this joy! I chased after them as they hugged we did snaps around the grounds of the venue with all of their favorite people. 

Venturing in the dining room & dance floor my friend DJ Dan had taken over & got them out for a first dance. It was near the end of it that their huge wedding party crashed the dance floor & completely surrounded  them. Super fun witnessing this spontaneous joy! 

Looking outside the sun was setting & turning the sky into magic colors. Of course we chased it & got some magic shots to go with the magic colors!

“Let your self be silently by the strange pull of what you really Love. It will NOT lead you astray!”~ Rumi 

Seven years ago Diane & Don honeymooned here in Maui & I was as fortunate to get to create some magic with them. Seven years later they returned on their anniversary & we struck gold.

We did not just one adventure but two On two sides of the island & I’m absolutely ecstatic about the great images we came up with! Day one adventures started in sleepy, eclectic, little Paia town continuing out to Hookipa Beach Park & couple other hidden gems most people never get to see.  

On day 2 we adventured way out on the west Maui mountains to a couple cool spots & then to this fairy tail forest which had them in awe staring at its beauty! 

Wanting every bit of Maui’s beauty in their images we adventured to this hidden rocky point on the west side & were rewarded with amazing light, swirly water & a fantastic sunset! Dreams Delivered!

Congrats to these two special souls!
